The Chinese have been responsible for the extinction of hundreds of species. Entire areas of Asia have been SCOURED by Chinese looking for exotic meals.

It is horrible that these innocent animals suffered like this. What good are laws if no one obeys them? The real problem lies in the fact that human beings do not obey the laws of God which are written in their hearts. Love and mercy. Everyone has a conscience...but, they've killed that, too.

The Chinese have been responsible for the extinction of hundreds of species... yes, it's sadly true...
But there are many Chinese who fight against that, who save animals and these people give me hope.

przykre to ale niestety prawdziwe, winni są nie tylko Chińczycy, ale wszyscy ludzie.

May I add, they need to go after and prosecute the intended buyers of these products. If there wasn't a demand, then there wouldn't be any supply.

Disgusting considering there have been petitions to protect these endangered species Who is doing anything about these lax laws they say they have Trust the Chinese to be involved again Is nothing sacred with them
They must get harsh punishments or else it wont stop

I hope they take them down!! The Chinese seem to think they own the whole world and everything that's in it while making their own suffer!!

Stupidity of people believing eating certain meat would cure them of illness! As if only human species matter, the less of human species better for all other species and earth!

Why doesn't anyone send a petiton to President Obama about all of the terrible things that the Chinese do, such as this ???? Do you think that this could be done without the sanction of their government ?? Our government is so very frightened of them, that we don't call them on ANYTHING !!!

These are endangered wildlife. The money is always more important than the animals.We are supposed to protect the animals we share our earth with before it is to late. Just give them a major fine and lock them up and throw the key away.

You beat me to it, Cal. I was trying to submit this story. Thanks! (at least your submissions are viewed - my submissions are noted by only a few people and never make the "front page").

Don't let them get away with it. Prosecute them for every crime they committed. China wants to protect only the Panda, it cares little about cats, dogs and other creatures. I won't buy Chinese goods and I wish others would do the same. It's my mini-protest.

Throw the book and the fines at them and confiscate their boat! Also go after the companies on both ends of this illicit action. Let them know we will not tolerate this!

This nation is just scum of the earth, they are lower than the lowest - despicable, savage and barbarically cruel. I have always said, get the animals out of their country, fly some planes over and drop those bombs!

I am beginning to loathe Chinese culture. Not individual Chinese, but this horrible, superstitous practice of killing animals for medicine. None of it has ever been scientifically proven to work.

What can you expect from a communist country, if they don't care about their own countrymen you can't expect them to care about animals!
